…haze, haze. Makes me think of Screaming Females awesome version of Shake It Off.
Whoa!…yummy dessert beer.
Done did it.
Look what was found in the back of the beer drawer. Held up well from a canning date of 19 Aug 2020.
Darn near had the thing drunk before fixing to take a pic. Couldn’t have said it better myself. Wonderful citrusy hop nose that follows through nicely on the taste. Very low bitterness with nice mouth-feel and clean finish
Love the artwork and the play on the Harry Potter game. Euene and Hubert on broomsticks, neck and neck after the snitch. But…to me they look more like octopuses…but OctopusesDitch doesn’t really have the same ring to it. Tasty beer too.
Piney and resinous nose right into tasty upfront hop flavors, with only moderate hop bitterness on the finish.
I can practically smell the flower fields in this juicy IPA. Well done.
And the winner for the “Miami Vice Theme” of 7th Anniversary beer cans goes to…Alvarado Street Brewing. Darn good beverage too.
Does make the homework go a bit better.
Straight from the decanter. ‘Nuf said.
Feeling right at home with this fine specimen of a DDH pale ale from the minds of Fall and Burgeon.
Not a bad one in the bunch. Her fav…Lost Monarch (found in plain sight…duh) an 11+% ABV pastry stout thing made with coffee and hazelnuts. My fav Lief batch 3, their version of a traditional geuze.
Darn good even though canned on 30th of September, 2020.
Self admitted vengefuller double ipa in the 8.5% ABV variety. Pic proves the murkyness. Flavor was juicy with soft hop bitterness…and “poof”…it was gone.
We buy more beer in a week than is safe to consume in a week. So I’m not too surprised to find this in the fridge 5 days past the enjoy-by date. Piney and resinous with pronounced bitterness and lingering dry finish. Hazy in an unfiltered way not in the NE style way. All that […]
…squeezed between my Strangest of Places and her Private Island, and everyone is happy.
It’s a tasty collaboration DDH pale ale from Burgeon and Fall Brewing…go figure. I’ll need something other than a toothpick to get that out from between my teeth.
A delish murky collaboration IPA from Pure Project and Phoenix’s Wren House Brewing.
Just like my favorite no-pulp morning breakfast beverage, I feel I’m getting 100% of the recommended daily vitamin C.
Hadn’t had one in a while. Pretty good stuff.
Not much nose on this one. Soft mouth-feel, nice hop flavors with mild bitterness. All wrapped up in a 6.7% ABV solution.
Worked a pinch. Hazy with nice hop profile. Soft mouth-feel, floral, fruity and piney nose with tasty mild bitterness that lingers slightly after.
L to R Invasion from Strata!, Kumquat Kween, Secret Spot and Aviator Glasses.
Fruity nose, soft mouth-feel and tasty hop flavors, lingering bitterness on the finish. All that and 8% ABV too. From the fine folks at Wisconsin’s Humble Forager Brewing.
Like an imagined beer from the Disney Jungle Book cartoon, but with more moisture.
… for me and a Bivouac Blackberry Jam cider for the lady. Nice to be out in da hood.
Really enjoying this beer. Nice citrusy/piney nose that follows through with the flavors. Pleasent, but mild, bitterness and only 5.5% ABV makes it easy to sip all day.
Quite happy with this 5.5% ABV pale ale from SLO’s There Does Not Exist. Extremely crushable. An enticing nose of hops with grassy notes, balanced flavor with subtle sweetness, soft mouth-feel and juicy finish. And poof… it’s gone.
Whilst waiting on our doner fries on the patio. Open for dine in as of Friday. Yay! Mmm…even better 28.5 miles into the bike ride.
A delish 10.5% ABV Belgian Quad. Yum
Fremont Brewing Lush IPA…mmm.
I read Thundera and don’t think amazon warrior woman comic book character….I think the beginning of AC/DC Thunderstruck Things assumed from the pic. Hazy India Pale Ale, from a can and made by Modern Times. If you assumed I also drank it, you are correct. Nice hop nose and soft mouth-feel, juicy up front, mild […]
Trying out a new beer glass. Didn’t quite hold 16oz, but a nice gift nonetheless. Oh.. the beer was good to, a crisp west coast IPA, which I attribute more to the brewery than the glass.
When I listen I still hear “moving hoards of people”, which, in my opinion, is much less inspiring. Looking forward to a patio pint at our beloved Amplified Ale Works. Cheers.
From Untitled Art. Though bitterness is a bit more pronounced on the finish I think it’s a nice version of a juicy IPA. Clocking in at 7% ABV doesn’t hurt either….. unless you are still working through dry January.
Nice juicy IPA from Seattle’s Fremont Brewing. Sniff, sniff…fruit and citrus on the nose…sip,sip…which follows through nicely in taste. Sip, sip…soft mouth-feel and…sip, sip.. mild bitterness. Whoa… it’s gone!
Recognizing the great day in 1935 when beer was first sold in cans. Quite happy with Three Weavers, The Messenger. A bright citrus forward 7.2% ABV IPA with great hop flavors.
An 8.5% ABV tripel from De Glazen Toren. Good. More dry and less sweet than others.
A 7.1% ABV vanilla oatmeal stout from Institution Ale Co. Smells sweeter than it tasted. Nice mouth feel and roasted malt flavors. I would have guessed a lower ABV based on taste. Merry ho ho.
Not sure how long this has been in the beer drawer. I’m sure the hops have mellowed a bit, but still quite nice. Nose was a mix floral and pine, which followed through on taste. Nice hop bitterness that lingered just long enough to encourage another sip. Would not have guessed 8.5% ABV.
Super fruity juicy nose the follows through nicely with the flavors. Soft mouth-feel and mild hop bitterness. Quite happy with it.
A delish DDH IPA made in the NE style from Other Half Brewing. I had no idea that an Oat Cream IPA even existed in this world. Pungent, juicy hop nose, creamy mouth-feel with nice hop flavors and no bitterness. Would have preferred pouring into a glass, but was not really an option at the […]
Amplified Ale Works delish 8% double IPA.
…at home. Quite nice 7.5% ABV hazy IPA. Kegs gone and down to cans… but cans travel well. This is one of two I stuffed into my bike jersey before heading home. Get them while you can.
A decent 6.5% ABV collaboration beer offering from the fine folks at Karl Strauss and Societe Brewing Company, made in the west-coast style.
A 6% clean hoppy lager with crisp dry finish.
Quite good. Resinous hop nose that follows through with flavor. Nice balance with pleasant bitterness…not overwhelming and doesn’t linger too long, but enough to want another sip. The 8% doesn’t hurt. Though per the back, my orange juice glass is not considered proper glassware. Maybe it’s better in proper glassware.
Parish Brewing Co.s 8.5% IPA is the best locally brewed beer I’ve had so far on this visit. A nose of resinous hops over a biscuit malt base. A green, citrusy hop bitterness with clean finish. No way I would have guessed 8.5% ABV. The light body is deceiving.
Quite happy with the 5.7% ABV marzen-style beer from a Shiner, TX. Malty but not too sweet, clean finish.
A 5.5% ABV dry-hopped saison with peaches from Whiner Beer Co. Quite nice. Light-bodied, Belgian yeast-like esters with citrus notes and a dry finish.
A juicy pale ale from Shreveport’s Flying Tiger Brewing. I liked it, but didn’t find it very juicy. Nose was of grassy hops, medium bodied with mild bitterness and somewhat dry finish. 6% ABV was a nice aspect as well.
From Chicago’s Whiner Beer Co., this 5.5% ABV “foggy IPA” has some off notes. Nose of bandaid adhesive which cares through to the astringent flavor. Sorry, but had to dump…yuck.
I enjoyed it. Nice citrus hop notes, with mild bitterness reminiscent of grapefruit peel. 6.4% ABV. Imported into Louisiana from Wisconsin’s Wild Mind Artisan Ales.
Nice tropical fruit notes on the nose with a juicy flavor, but not sweet, with a clean finish and virtuallyno bitterness. 2019 GABF gold metal winner under the emerging IPA category.
Exactly what I wanted. A nose of citrus and tropical fruit, juicy with grassy hop notes, mildly bitter finish that lingers a bit. All that and only 5.5% ABV. From NYs, Equilibrium Brewery.
Always happy to find Omnipollo beers locally. This collaboration is no exception. Nose has wonderful notes of citrus, pineapple and mango. Full bodied juicy flavors with soft mouth-feel. Not overly sweet, nicely balanced, with mild bitterness on the finish. Would not have guessed it was 10% ABV.
Pairs well with sushi, and sake, and my mouth.
The nose is a rush of sweet juicy citrus. Super soft mouth-feel with notes of tropical fruit. Nice balance where it doesn’t taste sweet but also very low bitterness. 6.7% ABV. Well done.
Doing my part for National Drink A Beer Day. Enjoying a juicy pale ale made in the hazy-style. 5.5% ABV.
Who doesn’t love dolphin sparkles? Yay! It falls somewhere between a NE hazy IPA and west coast IPA. Smooth and juicy but with with a bit more bitterness on the finish.
A big citra hopped IPA from Lagunitas. Runs about 8% ABV and tastes like a big beer with orange juice in it.
Quite happy with this 5.5% ABV hazy pale ale. Grassy-citrusy hop notes with mild bitterness.
An 8.5% ABV imperial saison for the lady and a 6.5% wet hop pale ale for me. Yum yum.
Grabbed on a whim and pleasently surprised by Wayfinder’s Shamanic Whip. A nose of tangerine and subtle pineapple. Medium body, nice balance with mildly bitter finish. 6% ABV. …???…Shamanic Whip III: Quest for the elusive whip? Hmm.. looks like I failed to use the proper drinking vessel.
Quite happy with this one after… what else…sleeping in. Great hop flavors with mild bitterness. Snagged this at BLAH.
Quite happy with my Brainwave. Delish citrus/pine hop flavors, medium body, with pronounced, but not overwhelming, bitterness but oddly doesn’t linger too much. Yum
Juicy and soft…delish. Finish has hint of black pepper.
Not a bad one in the bunch. L to R…or upper left to lower right since I can’t seem to rotate the pic… Poolside fruited IPA, Dragon Mask – Chocolate Churo Addition, and Stratos with Nelson hazy DIPA collaboration with Alvarado Street Brewery. Low ABV was Stratos at 8% with churo at 13%. Yum
Seems like it’s been a few years since I’ve had this wet hop IPA, from Amplified Ale Works, but then again, 2020 itself feels like it’s been a 5+year experiment… and we’re only 9 months into the year. Quite tasty. At 6.5% ABV could be classified a pale ale.
Quite good. Juicy with nice citrus notes, soft mouth-feel and low bitterness.
Twas a long-ass work day. Saving time and the glass and drinkin from the decanter.
…from da can. Tasty.
I hope my actions don’t disqualify the candidate, but I placed my vote more than once while at Taproom in PB. I’m pretty sure Taproom is not an approved polling place.
A west coast IPA collaboration from Pizza Port and Beachwood Brewing. Yeah.. this will work.
Whoa… …a delish 13% ABV triple IPA with great hop flavors, supersoft mouthfeel and almost no bitterness. Plus Stratatat, a +/- 5.5% ABV wet hop pale ale made with, you guessed it, Strata hops.
A nice 4.8% ABV session IPA made in the DDH hazy style by the fine folks at North Park Beer Co. Nice grapefruit notes.
Nelson and Strata….mmm.
Not quite sure about this beer. Smells super sweet with notes of caramelized sugar and vanilla, maybe coconut. Flavor has not as sweet as I would have thought. Low bitterness and soft mouth-feel. Totally reminds me of Pier 1 vanilla candle smell.
First time trying from a can. After a few hours of yard work in the hot late morning sun, the beer tasted great. The dip in the pool didn’t hurt either
Body and bitterness is not so different from other Stone IPA’s, but this had some unexpected notes of tropical fruit. More on the nose, but definitely there.
“Debbie’s Yeasty Red Vagina Ale” was unfortunately not chosen for the name of the beer brewed to celebrate a friends birthday. I blame myself. I did not generate and submit the artwork for the beer label for consideration. Be that as it may, I feel a bottle of the brew was accidentally slipped into the […]
Though they couldn’t serve us tasters at Ten Mile Brewing when we stopped byp a few weeks back, we were able to grab a mixed 4-pak. Trail Marker IPA is our last can. Well balanced with medium body. Piney hop flavors and pleasant bitterness that dissipates quickly after swallowing.
A delish, malty sweet 10.7% ABV oak aged imperial IPA where the aging smooths-outs the bitterness. Brewed for O’Dell Brewing’s 30th anniversary (2019). Cheers. It reminds me of the oak aged imperial IPA Dogfish beer brewed to celebrate blues guitarist Robert Johnson, though can’t recall the name.
A darn good Belgian golden strong ale, clocking in at 9.9% ABV, from Automatic Brewing. Grabbed this at BLAH a couple weeks back when, for a brief time, they had socially distanced indoor dining. Boozy, nice somewhat sweet malt base with notes of dried fruit…apricot maybe…and a dry finish.
Unfortunately I’m not getting the tropical notes I would normally associate with a Mosaic hopped IPA. Otherwise a nice IPA at 8.6% ABV and 85 IBU. Nicely balanced with pleasant lingering hop bitterness.
Arrived at Bridger Brewing at 7:55pm, sat at 7:58 and per Montana law last beer served at 8pm. Immediately ordered 2 IPAs and not disappointed. Well..sorta disappointed that I didn’t review the beer list a bit and pick 2 different beers, but happy with what I have. Old school IPA with the malt body to […]
Pleasantly surprised. Piney and resinous with nice hop flavors/bitterness and clean finish. All that and 6.3% ABV. From Bozeman, Montana’s Julius Lehrkind Brewing.
They were out of the barrel-aged horchata beer, and couldn’t get a taste of the Zonkers imperial stout as it was only in a can. Otherwise, top to bottom list starts just past 3-oclock with Jenny front right. Nitro beer ain’t in the pic.
I’m getting nice tropical fruit notes of pineapple and mango from local Highlander She grabbed the Old Faithful Ale, an easy drinking ale more red than golden, and virtually zero bitterness.
…a refreshing pale ale (on R), from Kettlehouse Brewing, for me and Salmon Fly Honey Rye, from Madison River Brewing, for the lady.
…from Outlaw Brewing front and center, the Juice Double IPA (R) from Madison River Brewing and Cold Smoke Scottish Ale (L) from Kettlehouse Brewing.
…wha, wha, what’s it all about? My last can of Check Your Hops. Need, need, need to get some more, but first, first get my ass up off the floor.
Flavor-wise, an unfiltered double IPA with piney and resinous hop characteristics and malty base with no residual sweetness. Discretion Brewing’s annual release in celebration of independence day. With numbers like 8.9% and 74 IBU… what more could you ask for? Oddly worded on the can. Double hazy implies double the haze, unlike a hazy double […]
Super juicy murky IPA from Pure Project. Comes with a nose of tangerine and pineapple, and a pillowy-soft mouth-feel. All that and 6.9% ABV.
North Park Beer Co’s 4th anniversary beer is a super juicy hazy triple IPA with nice notes of pineapple and mango. Though you can smell the alcohol I would not have guessed 10% ABV. It’s like a prize for being good today.
It’s been a while since my last Hop Fu! Worked for me…pale malt body, piney and resinous hop flavors, with a dry finish with lingering butter. Yep…drank it and liked it. Could use another if’n we didn’t buy just one..
Light body with piney hop flavors and dry bitter finish. Not my fav, but no so bad to dump it.
